Other Agenda Items:
Election of Officers: Nominating Committee (Patrick) will present the slate of individuals running for positions on the Executive Board. The Executive Board may, if time is available, also appoint the "at large" Board Members.
GENERATIONS DRIVE: While at the Las Vegas Fall NGC Fall Conference Stephanie and I heard reports from other local clubs that have started encouraging gardening and membership of all ages. People are experiencing the enjoyment of gardening with people and family members of all ages. One way of expanding interests to youth is by adopting a group, or by participating with a group at their meeting, or inviting 4Her's and Scouts to our meetings or outings. Thoughts?
Ideas for "meet ups" for hikes, walks, parks, and places. Thoughts?
